Using high-quality and vibrantly colorful Gütermann thread, fastened to minimalist frames of powder-coated steel, Gabriel Dawe creates spectral, architectural site-specific installations. Comparable to the work of Jesus Rafael Soto, Dawe’s expanses of sensuous thread seek to alter the way we perceive and experience our bodies in space. In calling attention to common materials, he explores the possibilities and potential of everyday objects to become extraordinary. In his 2012 sculpture Plexus no. 20 (part of the series that Dawe presented at the renowned TED conference the same year), he stretched hundreds of individual threads into graded angles, overlapping elements to create complex interactions of gradient color. “A plexus is a network of vessels in the body and the network of threads is intended to relate to that [physicality],” Dawe explains.
